    Re-thinking the role of the Company Secretary
    As housing association structures, activities and funding becomes increasingly complex, this seminar will consider the role of the Company Secretary in light of current and future demands.

    Who should attend?
    Company Secretaries, Directors/Heads of Governance, Chief Executives and Finance Directors who:

    *  Are looking at ways to improve their governance and risk management structures
    *  Want to hear how other housing associations and sectors use the Company Secretary role to enhance their business

    Why should I attend?
    Our speakers, Angela Lomax (DTP) and Sarah Greenhalgh (Bevan Brittan LLP) work with a wide variety of housing associations, which adopt very different models when it comes to the Company Secretary role. We will also hear from Paul Medford (Group Company Secretary, Aspire Housing) about his experience working both inside and outside the sector.

    We will explore the legal and regulatory requirements of the role, how it has changed over time and look at consistent themes that mark an effective Company Secretary. We will encourage attendees to share their own experiences so that they can consider how best to tailor the role to suit the current and future requirements of their business.
